For some reason 390 is a limited edition, but 590 is not. Though my impress is that 590 is the 8-day version of 390.

My preference is the older ETA movement PAM (000, 111, 112, 113, 114, etc)

But I also like the newer 562 and 564 titanium. I think they are well executed.

I wouldn't mind the newer white dial (561, etc) either, because I think they improved the lume on them.

Let me clarify, there is nothing "wrong" with 590. Only personal preference. :)
I vote PAM and initially went to try 590. Fell in love with 390 as base is totally different experience

I responded in your other thread. The Chrono Bleu is exactly the watch that I had in mind!

If it were me, I would get that one now and start enjoying it.
